Adolf Hitler’s Childhood: The One That Shaped Him Adolf Hitler, the incarnation of pure evil, climbed to power in Germany rather quickly at the end of World War I. Coming of power, he had countless vendettas with their roots in direct relation with experiences from his youth. With his strategy to exact revenge, Hitler is at most to blame for World War II which commenced on September 1, 1939. During the war, German troops began establishing concentration camps for those deemed as “undesirables.” These camps quickly spread like wildfire as war prisoner rates and the Jewish population grew.

An example of which is his father, Alois Hitler. Alois Hitler was born an illegitimate child, and is presumed to be Jewish, the main race Hitler targeted in Germany. He was publicly “an image of respectability” (Simkin), but his private life contrasted substantially. On January 7, 1885, Alois Hitler married his third wife who was also his second cousin, Klara Polzl. In John Simkin’s article, Hitler’s father is described as “a stern, distant, aggressive, and violent father” (Simkin). Studies show that Hitler’s father regularly beat him, sparking a hatred inside of him that only expanded. Hitler wrote about his father beating on numerous occasions. He once wrote about an encounter with his father, “‘After one day in Karl May that let the brave man give no sign of being in pain, I made up my mind not to let out any sound next time I was beaten...I counted every blow’… Afterwards he proudly told his mother: ‘Father hit me thirty-two times...and I did not cry’” (Simkin). Slowly, the beatings and abusiveness began making Hitler resent his father. He began expressing his hatred to his father stating “I never loved my father, but feared him” (Simkin). Many theorize that the abuse from his father directly contributed to his future hatred of the Jewish race, his ideology.

Germany had their own hatred against one specific group, the Jews, they were a less populated group of people against Germany and a whole lot weaker in military terms. The Jews were a very religious group of individuals. Following World War 1 Germany were trying to pick themselves back on their feet to regain their power they had lost in the war.
Born on the fourth of April, 1889, a boy by the name of Adolf Hitler would one day be known around the world as one of the most evil dictators to have ever lived. Adolf’s early youth seemed to have been highly influenced by his father until his death in 1903, after which he began to exhibit rebellious behavior. He started to fail in school and eventually quit formal education all together in 1905 and started exploring the depths of his artistic levels. In 1907, when his mother died, he moved to Vienna, planning to enrol in a famed academy of fine arts. He was rejected admission that year and the next thus leading him to a deep depression as he began to drift away from his friends.

He spoke so passionately and so eloquently, nearly every German adored him. Even children were taught to pray, “‘Führer, my Führer, by God given to me, Defend and protect me as long as may be. Thou’st Germany rescued from her deepest need; I render thee thanks who dost daily me feed.

Even before 1925, Hitler already had anti-Semitic views, and did have some intention to kill the Jews under the functionalist view. He operated as what historians such as Browning and Mommsen call, ‘the weak dictator’, and did not use the full potential of his power, which saw lower ranked Nazis play a vital role towards the creation of the Holocaust. Ian Kershaw’s book, “Hitler”, reinforced the functionalist view of Hitler. Kershaw wrote: “The signs are that ‘Crystal Night’ had a profound impact upon Hitler…he had harboured feelings which fused fear and loathing into a pathological view of Jews as the incarnation of evil threatening German survival”. Goebbels’ plan of enacting a pogrom against the Jews was successful in pushing for violent action.
